to people who are trying to get back on their feet. as jim axelrod reports discovering the benefits of running is more than physical. >> reporter: you might say ann has been running from her problem for years. >> it tore my family apart and it caused hardship and heartache and struggles. >> reporter: that wouldn't do justice to her powerful journey. her father was an alcoholic with a gambling problem. the best prescription for her pain she found was to run. every morning she passed a homeless shelter where the men would cheer her on. >> i realized that here i get to be the runner and they get to be the homeless guys. why can't we all be the runners? >> reporter: hoping to build their self-esteem she started a running club for them. >> i felt i could help my dad in a way i couldn't back then by helping these guys. >> reporter: six years later she's the ceo of back on my feet a nonprofit with branches in nine cities helping the homeless restart their lives. she just opened one at the bowery mission in new york. one rule. no slackers. >> you have to sign a piece. paper that says you'll

jim webb and mark warner win in virginia back when we thought virginia was a red state. you are trying to figure that out in and out. what is virginia? >> virginia is still pretty much a red state. a lot of people say purple. but if you look at the makeup of the general assembly and what's going on in local -- >> still easier to be a local republican, you think, and get elected than being a local democrat? >> well, of course, it depends on the state. i mean, if you're in northern virginia, it's hard to find a republican. if you get down where i live, it's hard to find a democrat with a search warrant. it's the tale of two states, as you're aware, chuck. >> but it's also culture. and i want to say something, a man you're close friends with, jim webb, in an exit interview i did with him, we talked about the specific issue that he thinks president obama is having. and if he weren't having it, this election would be over. here's what he told me. >> i will tell you, i said that directly to the president about two weeks ago. you know, how in the name of the lord can the democratic party, the
it more difficult, houses that are so close together. in fact, abc news' jim dubreuil was on the scene overnight and here's how he described the scene. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11, firefighters and cops during 9/11. this community was hit horribly tonight. then the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was literally right across from us. and as the fire just spread, we waded our way it another home and realized that the parking lot that we were next to, the cars literally started to blow up. again, the fire continued to spread. my understanding it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point. an area they call "the wedge." we thought we would come here and see people wanting to leave. tonight, they're being forced to leave not by flood, not by sandy, but by fire. >> we will be having information as it becomes available from queens. we'll have it for you again. a look at the greater new york city area struck so hard. including amy out there in staten island. >> josh, we have dramatic scenes of devastation coming into us right now.

' jim debrill was on the scene of the fire in queens. this is what he described. >> reporter: this is a community that lost the most people during 9/11. the firefighters and cons during 9/11. this area was hit horribly tonight. many expected there would be flooding. and then, the fire just erupted. we were in a home and fire was right across from us. as this fire just spread, we waited our way to another home. and then, realized, a parking lot we were next to, the cars started to blow up. and the fire continued to spread. my understanding, it has spread across about 12 blocks of breezy point, an area they call the wedge. we thought we would come here and see people that didn't want to leave. now, they're being forced to leave. not by water. not by flood. not by sandy. but by fire. >> devastation in queens. you see the areas affected in greater new york. we want to go back to staten island. >> that's right. we have more dramatic scenes of devastation coming in right now. extraordinary pictures of a large tanker ship washed up on the shores of staten island. this is a live look
rove super pac putting $2 million into pennsylvania. i was on a conference call with jim mess siena and jafds axelrod saying that's a bluff, that pennsylvania is not a problem. if people are worried about coming back from power outages which could last a week or more as they did after irene, and if people cannot get to the polls? this whole thing could be thrown up in the air. >> what's hard for me if you're trying to analyze this, well the president gets to look more presidential and that's good and mitt romney is sidelined or the president's voters won't be able to turn out. what's difficult this is a variable into an evasion that really has not changed basically two plus two has equalled four almost this entire campaign. it's been close. mitt romney has been behind slightly but it's been close. throw this other variable into this problem that we thought we had pretty much close to knowing the answer, close one or way the other, who knows. i think we focus on today, tomorrow but wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday into the weekend, can they resume campaigning? even if they do, t
know, it depends on the scientists. the leading edge scientists like jim hanson, kevin trenberth jim mccarthy, the ones that i think are right out at the cutting edge have been saying this. but you're quite right that many scientists have been very cautious and science has a cautious culture. you could almost say a conservative culture. their peer review process discourages them from even thinking about going out on a limb. and so they -- they are inherently cautious and conservative. but the evidence is now so overwhelming. you know, in the last ten years you showed some of the statistics but there there's an analysis of the extreme hot temperatures on the surface of the earth. they're now 100 times more common than they were just 30 years ago. and it is these extremely hot temperatures that are responsible for the increased evaporation, the increased water vapor in the air the increased drought. and remember this is hardly the only climate related disaster that we've had this year. 65% of the united state
